- I take the time to fix my clothes so I look good instead of just throwing on "something clean" from the closet!
- I had to punch new holes in my summer sandals so they would stay on my feet and my feet look better than I remember them!
- I take more time thinking about me instead of putting "me" aside for everyone else... you know, for my overall health!
I feel strongly about putting myself first...in more areas than just nutrition.
I cannot believe who I see in the mirror
I feel sad that I let so many years go by before realizing that I am worth it
I enjoy shopping
I enjoy socializing
I love myself
I love this thread. I just started my journey but I look forward to posting my own in the future.
Also, this is a great thread to keep on favourites when the motivation begins to lack and I need an extra boost. Thanks for posting things I have/want to look forward too.
So glad someone bumped this thread as I hadn't seen it before and I LOVE it!!! SO motivating to see what is in store for me as I shed the weight, and I get excited and encouraged when I see someone whose stats are (were) similar to mine at one time, and now have made goal!
And GREAT idea to keep this thread in favorites! Now I have to figure out how to do that
........Half-way to goal = 37 lbs........ .................
Although I have a very long journey ahead of me I can already see such a difference.
The AC is set 4 degrees higher and the windows are open before October.
The car seat belt already tends to stay where it belongs rather than sliding up because my belly is bigger than my boobs.
I can walk around in BJ's and other stores for a few hours and not feel crippled the next morning when I stand up.
I can wear a bunch of shoes either because they fit again or because I am not limited to my walking shoes.
Hi girls! Ive now lost 80 pounds since mid January!!! Wooo whoooo! And now that I'm thinner I can finally put the tray down in the airplane seat in front of me and set my computer there and read !!! and I no longer hang over "sort of" into the seat next to me, AND the seat belt not only buckles but there's inches left to spare!!! What to do with the leftover seat belt! So glad to be having that problem!
I'm cold all the time too...I notice it more when I am losing. I have green tea to keep me warm
I don't suffocate bending over to pick up dog poop or to clean.
Many people asked if I got shorter lol I hope not! I just take up less room
My face changed drastically, I lost the "baby fat". My half sister and I used to look very very similar and now not at all.
It is sad that people treat smaller people differently. I noticed that as well. I have doors held for me, get chatted up in elevators etc but I am still the same person. I think it may also have to do with exuding more confidence, maybe our thinner selves are making eye contact more and inviting conversation through body language?
